Sleeping Bumble Bee

Discussion in 'Other Animals' started by tiny123, Jul 4, 2008.

  1. I was walking around today before the fire works and i noticed this bee. I poked him and he moved but it just seemed like it was stuck, so i tugged on its wing a little and it just went right back in.

  2. I'm not an expert, but the bees on my deck garden exhibit this behavior after sunset and just before sunrise. I think they are in torpor until their bodies reach the correct temperature for flight. I have seen many of my bees nestled amongst the leaves of my passion flowers, zinnias, and dahlias.
     
  3. Really, i took this picture about 12pm and it is fairly warm today.
